Today we’d like to introduce you to Robert Reder.
Robert, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born and raised in New York City before becoming a permanent resident of Phoenix/Scottsdale in 2005. After completing my Juris Doctorate at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Massachusetts and Master of Laws at University College London in London, England, I practiced law for ten years in Arizona with two of the largest law firms in the country before forming Blythe Grace PLLC, a firm I named after my sisters.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things. Not because they are easy, but because they are hard. -John F. Kennedy
Blythe Grace, PLLC – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Blythe Grace represents individuals, small businesses and large companies located in Arizona and nationwide. With respect to litigation and dispute resolution practices, the firm has represented clients in cases ranging from small breach of contract actions to complex commercial disputes. With extensive trial experience, we frequently appears in Arizona’s courts and regularly conduct arbitrations, mediations, and administrative hearings.
The firm also assists businesses with a variety of employment matters related to human resource management, creating and implementing policies, prevention and defense of discrimination and ADA lawsuits, EEOC charges, and investigations by the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Department of Labor.
We are entrepreneurs and believe in supporting them. So our practice also includes representing hundreds of individuals and small businesses. We handle all aspects of corporate formation, contract preparation, employment law audits, business advisory work, and litigation prevention.
Blythe Grace is also very involved in supporting Arizona communities and national charitable organizations.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
In a pro bono case, after a nine day jury trial, my partners and I obtained a $1.2 million verdict and the return of a clients’ property in a complex dispute involving violations of Arizona and federal law. The jury’s decision had a profound impact on our clients and their families because of their financial situations. Ultimately, the money allowed those families to send their children to school. Very rewarding.
